Hundreds of devoted Roman Catholics are currently participating in the annual Stations of the Cross on Good Friday morning at San Fernando . However for the first time, the event did not take place on San Fernando Hill as parishioners had not received the permission to have the event there this year.
From 6am, they started the trek at the Cluney Eucharistic Centre at Mount Moriah Road, San Fernando before proceeding on St James Street, Mon Chagrin Street, High Street and finally at Harris Promenade.
The Stations of the Cross is a reenactment of the last day Jesus Christ spent on the earth. It depicts his condemnation, his pain bearing the cross, his fall under the weight and whipping and his eventual crucifixion. Specific prayers are said at every station.
